The Dictionary of Financial Risk management is designed for professional financial analysts and managers. It does not attempt to compete with such general reference works as the Barron's Dictionary of Finance and Investment Terms or The Encyclopedia of Banking and Finance. The present volume defines and describes many financial terms and concepts that these reference works do not attempt to cover, but it does not list many of the basic terms and concepts a financial analyst learns in introductory courses in finance or in daily experience in financial markets. The principal criterion for inclusion in this volume is that a word or phrase be something that a working finance professional might want to look up.
